Primary Drama: Getting ready for the transition to Secondary School -  Homework Sucks!

Primary Drama: Getting ready for the transition to Secondary School - Homework Sucks!

Help your Year 6 students make the transition to Secondary School by downloading and running this lesson exploring the role of homework and the importance of meeting deadlines through Drama. At Secondary School, students often find homework an issue. From their time at Primary students will be familiar with homework but they will not be prepared for the amount of homework they will be set or the consequences of not completing their homework. This lesson uses Drama to help Year 6 students learn about the role of homework in Secondary School and how important it is to keep up with deadlines. You can easily differentiate the resource or split it up into different activities to be used alongside your own planning and resources.

Key Stage 3 Drama: Exploring Power and Authority

Key Stage 3 Drama: Exploring Power and Authority

A Drama lesson exploring the authority that teachers have within a school through the way in which homework deadlines are dealt with. The clearly laid out lesson plan is great for non-specialist and specialist teachers alike. An ideal resource for Key Stage 3, but I have used it with Key Stage 4 as well, that explore the power and authority that teachers have over students and the relationship that power has with respect and trust. Be prepared - this is a lesson that creates debate! In the lesson, students will use performance skills to explore different scenarios, some of which they may well be familiar with, and create performances that experiment with the outcomes. Although not explicitly referred to in the lesson plan, this lesson could easily be extended into a Forum Theatre exercise as well.
